The Avengers Team Up With An Unlikely Hero For Spider-Island

Writer Chris Yost spills the deets on the weird team-up

Spider-Man is going to have his hands full dealing with the upcoming events of Spider- Island- but he won't have to handle absolutely everything on his own. Lucky for Parker, he can look to the Avengers for some help. Marvel has officially released a preview for the cover to the one-shot of Spider-Island: Avengers #1 penciled by artist Leinil Francis Yu. The book will be written by Chris Yost with interiors by Mike McKone. A small portion of the Avengers team will face off against a long-running terrorist organization, Flag-Smasher; but will they successfully contain the threat? Yost gave a brief recap of what his Avengers will be dealing with in this new one-shot.
 == TEASER ==

“It's day two, and Manhattan lives under quarantine,” says Yost, "The citizens of New York City are developing a bad case of spider powers, and things have gone a little nutty. The island has been sealed off, and the Avengers are trying to hold everything together. The one-shot has a few members of the Avengers dealing with a very specific threat. There's any number of super villains in New York at any given time, sure, but there's also random, heavily armed terrorist groups as well. Now imagine a trained, organized group of mercenaries with Uzis, RPGs, and super powers.”

While the Spider-Island event will bring the Avengers to quarantined New York in order to help contain the spread of the spider powers, the Spider-Island: Avengers one shot will be specifically focusing on Ms. Marvel, Jewel, Hawkeye and oddly enough, Frog-Man. Yes, you did read that correctly. So how did Yost successfully mesh Frog-Man with this team of Avengers, and will the heroes actually take him seriously?

Frog-Man really sees himself as an Avenger, even if nobody else does,” explains Yost. “And in the insanity of Spider-Island, maybe Frog-Man is the hero that New York City needs right now. Or maybe I kill him off mid-issue. You never really know with me.”

It will definitely be...interesting to see how these Avengers deal with Frog-Man on their side. What do you think of Marvel's upcoming Spider-Island event? Are you looking forward to Spider-Island: Avengers?

He was in Youth in Revolt recently. I don't remember him dying.

I'm not a Marvel guy, but the gentleman with the frog-motif has piqued my interest.

The creative team is acceptable.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Why does the Avengers have to get involved in every thing, I was hoping it was just spider related characters for this one.

You know, I've never been that crazy about Jones' costume, until in that drawing.  I can't quite put my finger on why.

Frog-Man was last seen saving some kids during riots and things in the youth in Revolt stuff in the current Fear Itself Arc. :) Yay good guys!

Posted by Blindside002

I might get this, because Ms. Marvel is in it. I honestly don't care about the story though. lol

Leinil Yu is awesome, that's why.

Oook then.

@NightFang: Marvel, weirdly, has a bunch of Frog Men bouncing around. This one is the son of the old Daredevil villain, Leap Frog. His whole purpose for wearing that ridiculous costume is to redeem his loser father's lame criminal career, somehow, through establishing himself as an even lamer super -hero.  
 
A third man, astonishingly enough, ran across one of Leap Frog's spare costumes & embarked on a brief criminal career before being accidentally electrocuted by his autistic son. For some inexplicable reason, The Hand actually resurrected this guy, just long enough for Wolverine to re-kill him.  
 
Frog Man had always been a joke character. I was completely unaware that he was still kicking, & getting kicked, around.

YeaH. Because its a reboot.... Its a relaunch. Marvel does the same thing, but every month. Whatever. I get that youre a Marvel fan. No need to bash DC. I was just saying that DC has been getting so much attention and Marvel just had to do something to get some attention. You could be nice next time. Thanks.
